The Arts Center will also host an emerging artist area for up to five artists, offering an opportunity for collegiate and rising artists to learn about business in the arts. In response to the exhibition on view during the festival, Cloth as Land: Hmong Indigeneity, and in celebration of the Sheboygan Hmong Summer Festival happening the same weekend, an additional minimum of five artists of Hmong heritage will be selected to be featured inside the Arts Center.
